Professor Dyson talked about his book Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster, published by Basic Books. He criticized the U.S. government’s response to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, arguing that the Bush administration and FEMA’s failure to provide aid in a timely manner is another reminder of the deep class and racial divide in America.
